Hi I'm Curtis Jay Jensen

I'm Curtis, I'm from Az. I love to Farm, snowboard, Be a missionary, I'm swaggarific, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

Well what can I say about me, I'm the oldest of 8 kids with two awesome parents. They really helped me to stay on the straight and narrow. Right now I'm serving a mission in the great state of Texas! The people are awesome and I'm very grateful for what I've learned out here. I'm from a small town in the desert of southeast Arizona. It's a pretty sweet place! It's a small farming community. Not a whole lot out there so me and my friends had to get creative to have fun! I worked for one of my uncles farming hay for a couple of years before I came out on my mission. It's one of my favorite things to do. I love to drive tractors, work with cattle, and do a bunch of random work on the farm. I really learned the importance of hard work from that job. I love being outdoors. I love the mountains as well, and rain in the desert. I love going snowboarding and I try to go as often as I can. I skateboard every now and again as well. I'm a big fan of music. I'll listen to anything that sounds good, but my favorite music is indie rock, 60's 70's rock, and classic country music. I love having the opportunity to work on becoming a better disciple of Christ and I try to do my best every day. So there you go, I'm a farmer that skates and listens to indie rock.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the feelings I've recieved as I've prayed about the Book of Mormon. I know that this Gospel is true. Jesus Christ truly did restore his Church back on the earth through the Prophet Joseph Smith. We've had a Prophet on the earth ever since that day. This knowledge of this Gospel didn't come all at once for me though. There was a time in my life when I wondered if God really existed, if he truly answered my prayers. I wondered if what I had grown up learning about my whole life was true. I know now that It is true. Jesus Christ truly is our way back to our Heavenly Father. He really did suffer and die for our sins. God really does answer prayers. Any one who's had the same questions as I've had can take these steps for themselves, read the Book of Mormon and Pray about it. It's as simple as that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now by serving a mission. I really love the peace and joy the Gospel has brought into my life and It's a huge blessing and a privilage to share it with others. I really enjoy being of service to others. Helping people out is where I find the greatest joy in my life. It's alot of fun to see peoples faces light up when you've done something nice for them. It's one of the many ways we can feel close to God and our Savior Jesus Christ. I've tried to live my life in a way that I can always be of service to others. Like Mosiah 2:17 says, "When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God. That's why I love being a missionary, I get alot of small opportunities throughout each day to serve others. Its awesome!
